The New York Times recently exposed a chap who appeared on the delirious FoxNews channel claiming US Presidential candidate Barack Obama was an agent for comprehensive communist revolution in the United States. You can watch a video of the program below ...
Other prominent American Obama smearmongers and their critics are linked here.
But what would the New York Times and the Boston Globe know? According to the Daily Telegraph's seasoned political expert Tim Blair, the real person behind the Obama smears isn't Daniel Pipes and/or Andy Martin. Rather, the smear merchant is none other than Australian pollster Malcolm Mackerras.
It isn’t conservative bloggers who are fixated on Obama’s race ... but certain leftish pundits.
Yep. Mackerras is the culprit. Mackerras has been accusing Obama of lying about his education at a Jakarta madressa, about wearing a sarong, about being exposed to the Koran. Mackerras has been making an issue of Obama's middle name. When you click to watch the video above, imagine it's Malcolm Mackerras.
Surely after such imbecilic commentary appearing on the Daily Tele's official website, editor-in-chief David Penberthy might recommend a secondment for Blair - to Fox News. I'm sure Blair and Bill O'Reilly would be a scream.
